Lydia Sykes

General Osteopathic Council Registration no. 11145

Lydia graduated from Plymouth Marjon University in 2022 with an MOst in Osteopathic Medicine.

Although Lydia is trained as an osteopath she works in a very similar way to our physiotherapists; looking at how people move and working to help them regain good movement patterns and reduce pain. She specialises in manual therapy to the soft tissue and joints.

In addition to providing osteopathic treatment for common conditions, her special interests include:

  • Chronic condition management
  • Sports Injuries
  • General rehabilitation
  • Neurorehabilitation

Lydia can help manage conditions such as Multiple Sclerosis, Ehlers Danlos Synderome, Hypermobility Spectrum Disorder and post-stroke management.

Lydia's approach to Osteopathy

Lydia has an interest in providing inclusive, accessible, person-centered care. She has completed CPD training provided by GIRES to further develop this. 

Osteopathy techniques

Osteopaths use a wide variety of gentle, hands-on techniques that focus on releasing tension, improving mobility and optimising function.

Patient’s symptoms are considered in context of a full medical history, as well as lifestyle and personal circumstances. This holistic approach ensures that all treatment is tailored to the individual.

Osteopaths will also provide health advice and exercises if required.
